The Always Suave, Red Carpet-Ready Looks of James Reid

James Reid is one of most stylish male celebrities around. You only have to visit his Instagram page for proof. Aside from artsy photographs, the singer-actor presents quite a range of looks, from boxy T-shirts and bomber jackets, retro outfits and printed tropical shirts. Whatever spectrum of fashion he’s sporting, James nails it.

There’s just something inherently stylish about him. James is the kind of guy women want to hang out with, and men secretly want to look like (although they’ll never say it out loud).

We look forward to seeing James again at the ABS-CBN Ball (he attended as a rookie celeb when it was still called Star Magic Ball way back when). This year, the actor will be dressed by designer Michael Cinco, but before all that, let's revisit some of the swaggiest looks he has worn.

That James Dean Swagger 

Though James and his girlfriend-slash-love team partner Nadine Lustre are all about the millennial aesthetic, he still maintains the timeless swagger of another James—James Dean. Here, he pulls off an effortlessly elegant rig with a relaxed shirt tuck, slim trousers, and dark loafers. James finishes off the look with loosely coiffed hair. 


Meanwhile, for a more chic feel, James commits to the Rebel Without a Cause persona in a retro summer-inspired look: a loosely tucked printed shirt with trousers and suspenders. 

That Stage-Ready Streetwear

Judging from his social media feed, it’s clear that James favors streetwear, yet the singer-actor knows how to turn his everyday style into a performance-ready outfit. See: this gray-white garb.

That Athleisure-Formal Moment

Normally, we’d disapprove of athletic details in a proper suit, yet leave it to James to prove he’s the king of cool by pulling off this tracksuit-inspired ensemble. The tee tones down the rather adventurous design. 

That Modded-Out Feel 

In one of our favorite looks from James, the actor channels mod vibes in this gray double-breasted suit worn with a white turtleneck and trainers. 


That Jet-Settin’ Life 

For his music video The Life, James dials up the jet-setter attitude by mixing streetwear with classic menswear elements. He pairs his off-duty uniform of white T-shirt and skinny jeans with an elegant peacoat… as he stands against a plane and a fancy sports car. But of course. 

That New Classic ‘Fit 

No doubt, James looks like a silver-screen leading man in a timeless black suit. Remember, gents, for a formal event like the ABS-CBN Ball, stick to the classics.
